Infrastructure is the basic equipment and structures -such as roads, bridges, buildings, water lines, and sewer systems are essential for functional, healthy, and vibrant communities. In order to function properly, infrastructure must be maintained, repaired, or replaced at the end of its life cycle. Because stormwater runoff has become one of the leading causes of water pollution in urban environments, community leaders and decision-makers are faced with making decisions on how to best manage stormwater in their communities.  

The City of Long Prairie has always believed that its people should live in a safe, sustainable, and beautiful community.  The city faced some challenges in its streets and utilities and needed a solution that would address these concerns. The City is now  undertaking a construction project to improve the city streets and utilities, which includes reconstructing the streets and replacing sanitary sewer, water main, and storm sewer infrastructure.

Since 1949, Bolton & Menk has been providing public infrastructure solutions for surrounding communities with bright futures, the desire to grow, and a common challenge of aging infrastructure. The engineering firm prepared a capital improvement plan that developed a phased reconstruction plan to address the areas of the city that were identified to be contributing to the infrastructural issues. The plan consisted of reconstructing the streets and replacing sanitary sewer, water main, and storm sewer infrastructure.

Construction in the CSAH 38 neighborhood

Construction in the CSAH 38 neighborhood is well underway. The underground utility replacement on 2nd Avenue is nearing completion and will soon be followed by street reconstruction. Underground utility replacement on the adjacent city streets will begin soon. Construction in this neighborhood will continue throughout the summer and extend into the fall. Construction of the CSAH 56 area is planned to begin in early 2023.
